Is Restylane Better Than Botox?
When thinking of cosmetic injection fillers, the first name that comes to mind for many is Botox. Botox, after all, is currently the most popular cosmetic injection on the market. That being said, if you are considering getting cosmetic injections to add volume or contour to your face, there is another product on the market that you should consider: Restylane.
The Advantages of Restylane
Restylane is currently the second most popular cosmetic injection on the market next to Botox. Like Botox, Restylane is FDA approved and recovery after the treatment only takes about a day or two. However, the main difference between the two products is Restylane’s main advantage over the popular treatment. Restylane can last significantly longer than Botox injections.
Typically, Botox injections last about four months. However, Restylane injections will last six months at the very least and can even last up to 18 months. Therefore, if you are looking for longevity from your cosmetic injections, Restylane might be a better choice.
The Benefits of Botox
That said, Botox still should not be written off as less effective. Botox is the most popular injection for a few reasons. One of these reasons is that treatment time is noticeably short. While Restylane treatments take less than an hour, Botox treatments usually only take about 10 minutes. So, if you have a busy lifestyle and only have time to get a cosmetic injection treatment during your lunch break, then Botox may be the best option for you. Furthermore, Botox is generally cheaper than Restylane, though the exact costs vary depending on what areas you are treating.
